International Duty

Posted by atleti on August 20, 2007

Defenders Pablo Ibáñez and Pernia have been chosen to play for Spain’s national team, in a 22-August friendly against Greece.  Giorgios Seitaridis will play for the Greece NT.

Simao and Maniche are preparing for Portugal’s EURO qualifiers.

Midfielders Jurado and Raul Garcia will train with the U-21 team on Tuesday 21-August.

Maxi has been chosen to play for Argentina in a friendly against Norway on 22-August.

Hopefully, they’ll come back uninjured! It was during a friendly against Spain that Maxi suffered that terrible injury in 06/07 season.

Speaking of Maxi, today he has told the press that he is confident Atleti will finish in the top 3 this season. He is also confident of fellow Argentine kun Aguero’s striking abilities. Maxi admitted that he might have left the club for a move to Italy or England had ‘things gone differently.’ It was important for the club to bring in the likes of Forlan, Simao, and Reyes– it showed Maxi that the club is ready to compete at a higher level.
